Intermittent running usually points to intake or impeller obstruction. Remove the impeller screen and cover, inspect the impeller, the screen the discharge exit point for debris. Unlike other brands the impeller is not replaceable if worn or damaged.

Running pump stopped


I assume that the plug in is working properly. Always check power supply first. Is there a GFCI circuit that it is plugged into. Then check the pump to make certain it us turning. How long had it been on before unplugging it. It could be worn out. Sometimes it takes a jolt to start the motor again. How big is the motor. Possible bad capacitor. Could be a solid state motor, then it's bad. Is it a magnetic motor, that could be turning the wrong way.

I have a brand new hozelock easyclear 6000 pond pump. When I plugged it in.....nothing!. Outdoor electrical socket working ok. The pond is newly built so their are no leaves or sludge in the pond, in-fact...


Sorry to hear of your setback but hopefully we can get you back to worrying about your pond occupants rather than the equipment. First remove the filter cover and filter and give the impeller a gentle turn to feel if the bearing or motor is jammed. If it turns freely try powering the unit to check if the impeller turns, sometimes the impeller needs a little bump to get it moving at first. If nothing still happens return the pump for a replacement.

Pump works for about 20 seconds then stops for 40 seconds then starts again.


this sounds as if motor is overheating and the thermal switch is stopping it (why it restarts by itself) if a pump is overheating then a few reasons need be looked at , is pump encountering higher viscosity's than designed for and is having trouble moving liquid fast enough , is distance pump has to lift liquid over what it's designed to do most of these pumps use liquid it's moving to provide cooling to pump , is liquid it's moving warm/Hot allready if so use different type of pump (non submerged) and last but not least is pump worn out and is failing moving parts wearing together make heat !!! ?

I have a submersible water pump It seems to suck ...


That is pretty much par for the course with a submersible pump. Eventually the pump will be damaged by running dry as it depends on the water to keep it cool. Can't you set it up a little on something so it won't **** dirt?

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??


Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

Is it possible that my well is going dry? second submersible pump I've burned up 1/1/4 hp gould pump lasted less than one mouth


several things will affect the pump, has there been a lot less rain than normal or using a lot more water such as more showers and toilet flushing ? if no then something else is wrong. the pump should3 feet from bottom of the well and should have roughly 10 feet of water above. when pump was replaced did they put it low enough in the well? The capacitor and wiring are they in good shape and supplying enough power? if voltage is low such as bigger pump or long wire run, too small a wire the voltage can become to low and cause pump failure. suggest having wiring tested first (cheapest) if all fine from there need to check water level and pump depth setting.

Pond pump types


There are basically two types of pond pumps to choose from - externally mounted and submersible. External pumps were traditionally used in water gardens. They sit outside the pond, with a hose that leads from a strainer in the pond to the pump. From there the water is forced either to a waterfall, stream or fountain. Because external pond pumps are often noisy and require extra plumbing, they are usually not suited for most backyard ponds. Due to easier accessibility and ease of repair, however, external water pumps are often the best choice for larger water gardens and public installations. Submersible water pumps are usually preferred by most do-it-yourselfers. They sit underwater where they are quiet and unseen. These pumps are easy to install, require no priming and stay cool thanks to the surrounding water. Submersible pumps draw water from the bottom of the pond, either through a strainer or biological filter. A hose attached to the outlet then feeds water to whichever water feature you have installed.
